If you install Windows for WorkGroups over an existing LAN Manager installation, you may receive the following error message:

Network name was deleted


This error occurs if you still have the LAN Manager entry for NET.EXE (something similar to "c:\<lanman dir> net.exe=1,") in a file called DOSAPP.INI.


To correct this problem, rename or delete the DOSAPP.INI file. After doing so, the error no longer appears.
